Akki means 'rice' in kannada and Chakkuli is a traditional recipe usually prepared during auspicious occasions like festivals. The basic ingredients are rice and black gram. Both are first soaked in water for couple of hours and died under the sun for half a day. Then they are parched in a kadai without any oil. Once the grains are crispy they are made into a fine flour which then made into a dough along with secret spice mix. The doe is then pressed via a chakkuli maker on a banana leaf which then transferred into deep fryer. Fried till they turn into golden brown color.
Mrs. Uma inherited this recipe from her mother. She is been making this since 40 years and no festival in her home is complete without these chakkulis. Needless to say that they are pretty famous among her children’s' friend circle. Every time her kids return from their hostels, she has to pack kilos of Chakkuli as they won’t get entry back to their hostels without sharing chakkulis with their friends. We have convinced Mrs. Uma to contribute her skills to the global community.
By the way, Mrs Uma lives in Sringeri. She sources almost all the ingredients from her farm. Please note as it is a made to order, it may take sometime to get the product ready. We respect your patience.
